Port Vale investigating after Leyton Orient keeper Lawrence Vigouroux racially abused as he shares horrific messages

PORT VALE have launched an investigation after Leyton Orient star Lawrence Vigouroux was racially abused online after today’s League Two match.

Vigouroux, 27, shared several horrific messages he received on Twitter following Orient’s 3-2 defeat at Vale Park.

He then commented: “Football such a beautiful game ruined by people like this.”

Leyton Orient immediately backed their man, a former Tottenham and Liverpool academy player.

The O’s said: “No one should face racist abuse in any circumstances, we’re all with you Loz.

“The club will be formally reporting this and hope it’s dealt with fully.”

And Port Vale promised they were investigating the messages, insisting there is no room for racism in the game.

They said: “We are aware of an abuse message sent privately to a Leyton Orient player.

“Port Vale Football Club will not tolerate abuse of any kind towards officials, players, staff or supporters.

“The club is investigating.”

The Port Vale Supporters’ Club added: “It’s come to our attention that Leyton Orient goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has been subjected to racist abuse online.

“We, and our Chair Mark Porter, want to make clear that racism is never acceptable and has no place in football.

“No true Vale fan would subject anyone to racist abuse.”
